High Performance Culture: The Common Factor -- RECOGNITION

Across all three characteristics of a high performance culture is a single common factor – recognition. When global strategic recognition is done right, a high performance culture emerges that energizes teams, drives maximum employee engagement, and ensures the achievement of strategic goals. By making the company’s values come alive for all participants and rewarding employee behaviors that reinforce them, appropriate and consistent recognition across teams and countries inspires the workforce and promotes greatness in all areas of performance.

By making it easy to acknowledge the daily exceptional contributions of individuals and teams located anywhere in the world, frequent and appropriate recognitions provide daily inspiration to all. Strategic recognition changes a company’s social architecture, creating a global culture of appreciation that is woven into the very fabric of the company. Manager-to-peer, peer-to-peer, team-to-team, country-to-country recognition unleashes a company’s latent power in its people to unite the workforce, energize a recognition program and drive a high performance culture across the organization.

Roger Herman and Joyce Gioia, authors of How to Become an Employer of Choice, said: “Employee performance is everything – it is what distinguishes top performing companies from those who are struggling. Statistics show that companies who recognize their people outperform companies that don’t by 30 to 40 percent.”

What would the impact be if your company performance numbers increased by a third? How would that change not only your company, but your industry? The potential impact of effective and appropriate recognition is too powerful to ignore.
